Miles Benton and Elizabeth Baker married on Sept 11, 1826. Here is a link for a list of some Benton Family marriages:


In the 1850 US Census for Gates Co., NC, the family is listed as:
1. Miles Benton age 47
2. Elizabeth Benton age 45 (this is Elizabeth Baker dau. of Blake Baker 1773-1855)
3. Ceola Ann Benton age17 (should be Celia)
4. William S Benton age 15 ( transcription error, should be T for Thomas)
5. James B Benton age 12
6. Miles W Benton age 10 (W = Wright)
7. John L Benton age 8 (L = Lewis)
8. Jesse B Benton age 3
Living with them are:
1. Lousia Omfleet age 17 (transcription error,should be Umfleet)
2. William Archer Omfleet age 9 (see above note)
These may be children of Margaret Peggy Baker and Lewis Umphlet/Umphleet
Miles and Elizabeth moved about. In the 1860 census they are living in a household with John and Mary Parker and several other families still in Haslett, Gates Co., NC. In the 1870 census they have moved to Cypress Chapel, Nansemond Co., VA (post office listed as Suffolk) and are living in a household with the Bunkley family.
I do not have any info beyond that.
